Works about this Work

BlackWords : Children's Literature About Country Anita Heiss , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: The BlackWords Essays 2015; (p. 6)

In this essay Heiss addresses the increasing number of Aboriginal authored children's and young adult literature published that focuses on the 'meaning of place' in an Indigenous context. She demonstrates this by selecting writings and stories from regions such as remote, semi-remote and desert to tropics, which showcase the diversity of life in different parts of Indigenous Australia and the essence of Aboriginal storytelling.
